Roll 'Em, Vol. 1

Roll 'Em, Vol. 1

by Benny Goodman


7 New & Used Starting at $1.99


Columbia has never coherently reissued their valuable 1939-46 Benny Goodman recordings. This LP is a bit confusing for it includes six aircheck performances from 1937-38 that are available elsewhere, along with ten studio recordings from 1939. The liner notes mistakenly say that the guitar solo on "Honeysuckle Rose" is by Arnold Covey; it is actually Charlie Christian. There is some excellent music on this LP but as a sampler it misses the mark.
